"Well, ohild, what "sort of advice do
you'waut? It scorns to tao, that among

schools; but) I really don't know of ono
that suite tue altogether."
"Why, Susan, I think, from what I
know o? Mra, Porter's school, that 'you
could not do better than to send both
the girls tb her;"
"Well, so I thought, andi went'to seo
her yesterday,, in ten di ny to entor them,
but I'm all ot son .again." .
"Vtfhy, what is the difHoulty?"
"Well, her terms-did not suit our cir?
cumstances; and when I asked her if she
wouldn't tako loss, in consideration of
my sending two, she said that they must
'be put in different olasses, and that sho
would bo obliged to devote to eaoh some
extra time and attention, because sho
found them very backward and not pre
pared to study with her regular classe.."
"Well, Shs?h, you could noW>bjeot to
that; and I think it mort be very trying
to a teacher to be nek od to class pupils
after her school has been in operation
for a month. You ought to be willing
to, pay'something extra when you ask
."But, Aunt Dorothy, you know how
it was-I was siok and could not gel
their clothes in order in time,.'and I
wasn't going to send my children tc
school till I could send them wei!
"I will not argue that point with you
now. Susan; but I will say that yoi
ought not to ask Mrs. Porter to oonsidei
? that in making her o barge."
"Well,' it's customary, at, any rate, foi
t??ah?rs to make deductions when twc
are sent from one family."
"Perhaps it in, but I never oould sei
tho justice of it. If you send your chit
dren, to Mrs.RPorter, I suppose she wil
tea a h and train them aa two, just os thei:
i father, feeds and clothes them' ao twp
You expect them both to be educated ant
benefitted by going to school ; why, then
shouldn't you be willing to puy fo
"Well, so I would, if we could ?flori
it; but it ia bar danmor us to make botl
ends meefc, and yjjB||ffi3 it is our duty tc
use the striotest economy. The childrei
must get a good education, for it's th
duly thing wo can give them." ,

..Certainly, I do."

that her school Was filling up rapid!

she seemed BO anxious to. have the oh

"Ah, that is just where you made

"Are Mary uud Nettie willing to leal

that is just what I do think, and I am

AFEW reasons why they should have the
preference o vor all others:
1. Wheeler A Wilson's Sowing Maohine is
mach simpler .than, any of tho others; re?
quiring leas than. h*lf -tho amount of ma?
2. As tho result of this simplicity, thia ma?
chino is much loas Hablo than tho others to
get out of repair.
3. Another result of this simplicity is
4. Anothor result is less friction, and, con?
sequently, greater ease and rapidity of mo
lion, with lens noiso.
5. And greatest of all, that it uses no Shut?
tle, and makes tho lock stitch.
It is tho cheapest to buy tho beet. Bny the
maohine that has justly, fairly and honora?
bly won a reputation and independence '
against a strong and bitter competition. For
moro than twenty years has the Wheeler A
Wilson not only stood first and foremost, but
now st ands the uni ivalled Sowing Machine of

chine that has been thus tested and proved,
and then you are euro to get tho beet. For
